Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Monster setlists- is it deceiving?

Just flipping through some time periods on setlist program and found a huge run at the greek theatre sept 11-13 1981. All 3 nights have amazing setlists. Anyone familiar with this run and if so does the playing match the setlists?

All three of these shows sparkle, especially 9/12!

Take a look at the new Nak fobs uploaded yesterday for those 1981 Greek shows. As good as the Wise Senns are these may be an upgrade. I do think that 1981 suits the fuller sound of the Naks better...pre-6 string Modulus bass and Bob with the Ibanez.... the band did have a clearer, thinner sound than let's say 1983 when the Senns may be preferred.

nice call on this run! i think the first show and the third show are the shiners!

9/11/81:
Photobucket


jerry had SHAKEDOWN, so bobby had to have STRANGER, jerry had IKO, and so... bobby had to have WOMEN ARE SMARTER -- what can you say, unless you're hung up -- it's a wash -- i like MR JG playing over that zydeco beat however the vocals pan out. jerry was really PICKIN IT in the second set this night -- OUTRAGEOUS hotpickin on stranger and a strong franklin's next.

the whole sequence of HE'S GONE>TRUCKIN'>Drums>OTHER ONE>MORNING DEW>JB GOODE -- i mean what more can you ask for. this is a CLASSIC sequence where they are at their unconscious best -- rapt in the moment -- prone to ZEN MASTER LEVEL -- and i think this show - it is right there...... this is a home town show at the band's own little secret playground in the hills -- playing under the eucalyptus trees and sunny skies -- dead heaven: FLOAT ON A CLOUD FOR REAL.......
